TRIGGER WARNING: ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
EVERYONE needs to know this. This is how nearly all abusive relationships play out, nearly all of the time. It’s very, very common and very important.
Bear in mind that “violent outbursts” can also mean mental/verbal abuse, shoving or holding someone down, throwing things at the person or threats.
Usually, this cycle worsens and worsens throughout the relationship. The violent episodes last longer and longer and the honeymoon phase gets shorter or may disappear completely, leaving the relationship bouncing back and forth between tension and explosions.
Please reblog if you think your readers could be helped by this?
I am reblogging this because if I had seen a chart like this in high school I could have recognized my abusive relationship for what it was. And this goes for almost every woman I have ever encountered that has been in an abusive relationship.
This is so true.
Essential information. Here’s my video explaining this and more about relationship violence. It’s called “When Love Gets Violent”. TW for a very intense 911 call at the beginning.
- Nothing impresses the chicks like wearing goggles.
- And even if that doesn’t prove true, you need them to hold up the hair…
- There is nothing wrong with being reckless. Those who run into the enemy’s line of fire, get the most digivolutions! Joe and Sora like to play it safe, but do you see them getting CG digivolution scenes?
- When in doubt, shout.
- An untidy room is the sign of undiscovered brilliance. Others may not appreciate this. Fortunately, your room is also your safety zone - nobody else in their right mind would dare enter.
- Only sissies like Matt gel their hair. You can get the same effect by sticking your finger in a socket. That’s the man’s way.
- You can not die from your hayfever, although others might wish you would.
- Some may say that contacts look better, but can you imagine looking for a lost contact lens in the digital world?!
- Izzy stole your potential position of “token smart guy”. All that is required for the reclaiming of this right is implementation of a little more advanced vocabulary (if you have everyone staring at you blankly every time you speak, that’s a good start). Oh, and put a virus on his computer.
- Look on the bright side; at least laryngitis isn’t on your long list of maladies (although again, others may wish it were), so you can still loudly voice your complaints.
- Just because your father and brother are doctors and you are to be one too, doesn’t mean you should read all the medical journals lying around the house. They will give you bad ideas and you may convince yourself you have hypochondriasis.
- If the others don’t listen to you, try shouting. If they still don’t listen to you, open fire.
- Why worry about being stranded with no food when you have a walking fish market at the ready?
- Nobody cares if you’re allergic to something. Nobody cares if you break out in hives. Nobody cares if you get motion sickness (unless you throw up anywhere in the vicinity of them, that is). Nobody cares if you get hayfever. Do not let this discourage you from announcing these conditions at every opportunity.
- Offering to travel with a pretty girl, alone, in the name of reliability - such a chore - yup, pretty smooth.
- Do something. Your friends are a) losing their grip on sanity, b) complaining endlessly, c) having identity crises, d) undergoing deep personal and emotional difficulties, e) nearing death’s door and f) suffering the psychological aftermaths of childhood problems. Being normal and healthy just doesn’t get you anywhere.
- Don’t let yourself be labeled as the “nice one”. Such characters are usually given no personality or decent subplots. Occasionally do things to contradict this popular viewpoint. Heavy artillery is not out of the question.
- In fanfiction, you will be paired up with every other character imaginable. You have no control over this; experience shows that even if you tried to counter this by showing people you hated them, fans would interpret it as “romantic tension”.
- Watch The Hair.
- Unprovoked violent outbursts are a serviceable substitute for eloquence, dignity, or reason.
- If anyone criticizes The Hair, direct them to Tai - that ought to put things into perspective. If the critic in question is Tai, just push him over. Hard. Into mud.
- Angst and insecurity might make you feel bad but they also allow you many close-ups of your deep blue eyes, perfect features and pensive expressions, thus ensuring you a healthy number of internet shrines and an unhealthy number of teenage female obsessees.
- If you try to project a cool image, maybe people will not notice that you’re actually a hot head.
- Your most valuable asset is not your hope, or your Digimon partner, or your inner strength… it is your eyes. If you look cute and pathetic, other people will risk their lives to protect you, lie to satisfy you, and basically do whatever you want.
- If your big brother really wants what’s best for you *sniffle* maybe he would carry that big, heavy backpack *puppy dog eyes* as you already have to lug Patamon around most of the time, and it’s too much of a strain *sniffle* on your little body?
- Don’t worry, next season you’ll get your turn at having female fans of the show drool over you. On second thoughts, worry.
- Colour co-ordination really isn’t of much significance when the fate of two worlds is at stake… but it is a nice bonus. See if you can swap Palmon for Biyomon, and steal Kari’s crest, then you’ll really be the pink princess.
- People really are interested in the state of your feet/dress/hair.
- The advantage of being a female digidestined is you don’t really need to do anything, but nobody will notice so long as you occasionally look all determined with everyone else.
- Just because the others don’t understand you, doesn’t mean you should stop talking.
- Your hair is a disgrace to digidestined males. Gravity is the enemy!
- Hey, it makes perfect sense to wear big gloves while using your computer. Just don’t be too surprised when you get 404 errors resulting from massive typos.
- When in doubt, make things up - nobody has a clue what you’re talking about anyway, so they’ll be none the wiser.
- Try to be interstate when your parents receive the phone bill for your time spent in the digital world. An international call to your ISP is bad enough, but an interworld one?
- If you occasionally murmur under your breath, and keep a suitably “determined to solve this problem” look on your face, nobody will suspect that you’re actually downloading warez rather than cracking the code of the digital world.
- This whole digital world adventure will be really convenient in the future for getting your parents off your back about spending too long online. “Sorry, I *can’t* get off the computer - I’m in the middle of interceding in warfare between multiple worlds that could well affect the future of life as we know it.”
I started that like three weeks ago and i’ve also been working out. What i’m doing is already producing results. I have lost some inches off my love handles and overall i just feel way better. I try and eat about 6 small meals throughout the day.
What i eat:
- Brown rice
- whole grain pasta
Stealing this from one of my besties ._.
I need to lose a few hundred. Goal weight is 129! Considering I can’t get back into the groove of my old diet anymore, maybe a new one will help?
